Anyone know how to calibrate a Escali scale? As one can see in the attached photo my scale is reading quite wrong. The scale has never been dropped or abused nor submerged and changing the batteries has not improved this problem. I know several members also use this model scale and so wondered if you have encountered this problem and if so, what you did about it.

The only reason I found this problem was I recently acquired a set of calibration weights and was curious how close my scale was.

1000 grams weight measures 1136 grams on this Escali scale

500 grams @ 568 grams

200 grams @ 227 grams

100 grams @ 113

50 grams @ 56

So it seems to be about 13 percent off. So when I measure 1000 grams on this Escali scale the weight in actuality is somewhere's closer to 870 grams in the real world.

I don't have any calibration weights less than 50 grams and so do not know how far off it measures below 50 grams. I use the scale to measure the salt in my bread recipe and that is but 9 grams, on this scale.

As to when this problem developed I haven't a clue, perhaps it came from the factory mis-calibrated as I really didn't check it and only recently had the means to do so. I am left with the thought that all the recipes I have developed for myself are suspect.

And so I wonder has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know how to calibrate this scale?

Thanks, Wiley
